Since the inception of Share International magazine, Benjamin Creme's Master has provided articles to be published not only at the time they were written, but also whenever appropriate according to world circumstances. Indeed, many of these articles seem more relevant now than when they were first published. To humanity's shame, lawlessness and chaos are prevalent in the highest offices, and nowhere seems immune. And yet the Master here points to a new spirit, new reverence and new beauty and, despite the present apparent trend, victory is assured.
by the Master —, through Benjamin Creme
It is becoming increasingly clear that the conflict between Good and Evil is being won by the Forces of Light. Gradually the Good is gaining the upper hand in this age-old struggle for the minds and hearts of men. To some, this may seem an astonishing statement to make in the light of the tensions and cleavages which exist in the world. Yet such is the case, and were you to see the world and events as do We, the Elder Brothers, you would see a world undergoing an extraordinary transformation. On all sides there is evidence that the old order is crumbling. Ancient hatreds divide the peoples and lawlessness abounds, but everywhere there are signs that a new spirit is awakening in man, a new sense of responsibility and a renewed reverence for life in all its forms.
Many are the manifestations of this new beauty; many and marvellous are the visions of the future opening up before mankind. Man stands as yet at the threshold, only, of a new beginning yet already the signs of progress are there for those who have eyes to see.
We are witnessing now a polarization which is forcing humanity to choose. So fearsome are the dangers in the present modes of living that the spirit in man revolts and searches for the new. In this way is man brought to the recognition of the Will of God. Behind all stands the Plan, embodying that Will, and knowingly or not, men are now ready to implement that Plan.
Groups of men are forming themselves on every hand to manifest the new.
Inspired by love and the spirit of necessity they envisage a simpler and a saner world. They see that from the imbalances and tensions of the present must grow justice and harmony. They know that they are divine and can perform miracles of change. They sense the needs of the time and dedicate themselves to service. They represent the Good in every land.
Many are the ways to God but the quickest and the surest is the Path of Service. No other path so fully embodies the nature of God. Take your place on this path and carry out the dictates of your soul. Follow the promptings of your heart and awaken to the needs of the world. Know that as you enter on the Path of Service you accept your place within the Plan, and find yourself well set upon the Path to God.
Ready, then, will be the response from Us, your Elder Brothers. Quickly shall We seize the opportunity to help you on your way through stimulus and proffered fields of service. Thus can you join Us and aid Us in Our work. Make this your aim and join the ranks of the Servers of the world. Take your place at Our side and work with the Forces of Light. Victory is assured but must be fought for and won.
Be not afraid in the midst of the chaos and tension. Fear has no place in the present situation; rather, see it as a challenge to your faith.
